Drug Interaction and Oral Surgery

If you are scheduled for a procedure please be aware there will be a review of your medical history and x-ray, Dr. Kim may deem due to complexity or health issues that your first visit will be a consultation only.

Medications your surgeon uses in routine oral surgery may interact with both prescription and illegal street drugs. These reactions may result in SEVERE reactions under anesthesia which could cause harm or death. It is extremely important that you inform your surgeon of any drugs you are currently using or may have taken so this may be considered in your oral surgery planning. This information will be held in strict confidence.

The effectiveness of BIRTH CONTROL pills significantly decreases when taken with antibiotics. If you are using birth control pills and receive a prescription for antibiotics from Dr. Kim, be sure to supplement your birth control pills with an alternative contraceptive.
